Hobart A200 oil leak

I have a used A200 mixer and I noticed after it sat for a few weeks that it collected a yellow grease on the outside of the planetary housing on the little ledge above the agitator shaft. Thus it wouldn't seem to be leaking from the agitator shaft oil seal but maybe a transmission oil seal and eventually leaking over the side of planetary hub. I haven't removed the agitator, yet, but how would I replace a transmission oil seal if it's necessary? I have a parts catalog w/ breakdown already. Thanks for any help.

    I have noticed a glob of grease up where the hook attachment goes, coming from what looks like a nut or a grease cap. At the same time I have been hearing a sound like gears spinning coming from the top of the machine, just above where the grease is, where I rest my arm when I'm pausing at the mixer. Need help. Thanks

Oil (or maybe broken down grease) leaking from the accessory hub of Hobart mixer.


You're right, it's broken down grease. The A200 doesn't have a rubber seal to prevent this from leaking, either. That's normally OK, when the grease in reasonable condition, but when it breaks down bad enough, you see what you're seeing. The grease needs to be changed which requires disassembly of the transmission. It's quite a job (and very messy) if you're not familiar with it, but if you're interested I know I've read (and may have written one) instructions on disassembling the transmission on this website. If you decide to do the job yourself, be sure to remove the attachment hub (comes out to the inside of the transmission) and clean the passage well.

Oil leak


instead of putting a gasket on tell him to take out all of the old grease out that is what has broken down and turning into oil causing a leak and if he can repace the seal around the agitator shaft replace the old grease with a high temp bearing grease or a good quality lithium grease

Oil leak on A200


OK guys, let's try to solve your common problems first then the rest will become clearer.

The Hobart A200,,,,,,,, does not use oil! It uses grease! If you see oil, it's because the grease is separating the oil in the grease. Both machines have not been serviced for at least 5 years. That's about the lenghth of the lifetime of most greases. I recommend that you call Hobart and ask about their tech. rates. All bearings should be checked carefully for wear, as should the worm gear, seal, and the Bronze gear that it turns. The Planetary (mixing part), should be removed as well, cleaned. and inspected. Replace the seal on the planetary and on the mainshaft. Removal of all old grease is required, as it's no longer doing the job it was designed to do, will result in advanced wear, and is the actual source of your problems. The seals were designed to seal grease, not oil.

If Hobart is too pricey for you, and they are for many, try to find someone from a wholesale restaurant equip. place who has rebuilt these machines, or find a repair shop who have experience with this Hobart model. If you'd like to tackle the job yourselves, go to www.hobartservice.com. Register for free, then find the files that match your mixer model and ML # and download the parts files for it. These exploded drawings will be very helpful with your task.

Either way, these mixers need to be opened up to remove existing oil and hardened grease, especially the oil! The planetary must be removed to drain any oil out of it and to regrease it. If you can get the oil out of the mixer, a short fix would then be to simply regrease the the mixer and put it back into service, leaving the existing seals in place. Don't forget to wipe out the shiny ring on the planetary, if it too has oil in it.

There is no seal at the hub. No seals can be tightened. The oil leak underneath the mixer comes from the motor shaft seal at the transmission case where the pinion gear enters the trans., it flows down into the mixer support column and drips onto the floor or counter, again, because of the breakdown of the grease.

If you tackle the job yourself, find your local Chevron Distributor and get several tubes of the approved grease, namely, Chevron FM ALC EP NNGI 2. Chevron p/n 230204-000. If you've found this solution helpful, please rate it as fixya!

Good Luck! ricardok45

Old hobart s-30 mixer oil


man you got an oldie but goodie mixer!im a hobart service tech for 8 years and have only seen about two dozen,unfortuantly parts for these units are exhuasted.as for the sight glass they do become cloudy over time and you cant determine the oil level.use a heavy gear case oil.the only way of telling is to drain the oil or if the unit is loud you should probably cange the oil.
